Therefore, I have to say a digital scale is imperative and a magnet is usually easy to find online too.
just to be clear....
when you said 'silver test', did you mean 'non-magnetic test'....?

Re: Trade dollar - SOLD!

Thanks guys....I'll definitely take this into consideration because sales are happening! I just sold the Trade for $117.50 after a $74 starting price, and I have bids on two other items. I figured I was too high on this one but I guess not.

Let me get used to Ebay before I try selling in multiple places. I'm technologically challenged and haven't even used Ebay in 12 years. It's not a very user-friendly system when it comes to changing settings and knowing whether or not I've completed every step with regard to shipping and notifying my customer. I know a lot is automated, but they need some kind of checklist with big green check marks like in tax return programs because there are multiple steps and it would be easy to miss one, especially as things speed up. Right now I'm just posting a bunch of random stuff to get a feel for the system. If it sells, great. If not, then I'll learn and try something different.

You can pick up a "gram scale" for as little as $6.50, no delivery fee, on ebay.
"Digital calipers" are a bit more expensive at $10.

Super! Thank you! I know I've also read something about using acronyms and labeling all of my files consistently. Can someone point me in the direction of a good acronym list I can use to create item numbers and label my pics?
